    Revo does that too, also makes a restore point before uninstalling.

    I think you click on "merge" to recover, correct?
    Thank you but if the PC is modified in the interim I think there could be an issue.
    I will not be using the registry cleaner and hope the Windows section is safe. So far so good.

    Good mention, that's true, Revo also does that.

    How do I restore registry backups?

    Right-click on the .REG file created and select 'Merge'.
    By default these files will be saved into your 'My Documents' folder.
    I generally put them on my desktop for easy access & then after a couple days move them to a folder on the desktop & keep them for a couple weeks just to be sure.
